Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Jano Foundation, we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

Who We Are and What This Policy Covers

Hi there! We are the developers behind the Jano Ticketing System. Jano Foundation is an unincorporated association. This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you:

Throughout this Privacy Policy we’ll refer to our website and other services collectively as “Services.” Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our services that have a separate privacy policy. Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Creative Commons License

This Privacy Policy is based on the Automattic Privacy Policy , which is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. This modified version is also available under the same license. You’re more than welcome to copy it, adapt it, and repurpose it for your own use.

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so: for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.

Information You Provide to Us

It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:

Information We Collect Automatically

We also collect some information automatically:

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your module repository account through another service (like GitHub), we will receive information from that service (such as your username and basic profile information) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available. We may get information, such as name and address, from third party sources about individuals that we have entered into a legal agreement with, which we may use to validate the information we collected from you and for fraud prevention purposes. We may also get information, such as an email address, from third party services about individuals who are not yet a contributor (… but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes.

How And Why We Use Information

Purposes for Using Information

We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:

A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:

  1. The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under our Terms of Service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account - for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device; or
  2. The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
  3. The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
  4. We have a legitimate interest in using your information - for example, to provide and update our Services, to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better user experience, to safeguard our Services, to communicate with you, to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, and to personalise your experience; or
  5. You have given us your consent - for example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyse them later on, as described in our Cookie Policy.

Sharing Information

How We Share Information

We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

You may want to review Jano Foundation’s full list of sub-processors.

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is – you guessed it – disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your public profile, posts, other content that you make public, and your “Likes” and comments on our community, are all available to others – and we hope you get a lot of views! The photo on your public profile, if you have one, along with other public profile information, will display with the comments and “Likes” that you make. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

How Long We Keep Information

We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it - which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information - and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to one of Jano Foundation’s websites, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyse traffic to Jano Foundation’s websites and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites. As another example, when you delete a post, page, or comment from the community, or a module from the repository the deleted content may remain on our backups and caches until purged.

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks. To enhance the security of your account, we encourage you to enable our advanced security settings, like two factor authentication.

Choices

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

Your Rights

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (that is, the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

You can usually access, correct, or delete your personal data using your account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that, or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, scroll down to How to Reach Us to, well, find out how to reach us. EU individuals also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.

Controllers and Responsible Companies

Jano Foundation is the controller of your personal information, which means that we are responsible for processing that information.

How to Reach Us

If you have a question about this Privacy Policy, or you would like to contact us about any of the rights mentioned in the Your Rights section above, please contact us.

Other Things You Should Know (Keep Reading!)

Transferring Information

Because Jano Foundation’s Services are offered worldwide, the information about you that we process when you use the Services in the EU may be used, stored, and/or accessed by individuals operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who work for us, or third party data processors. This is required for the purposes listed in the How and Why We Use Information section above. When providing information about you to entities outside the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient protects your personal information adequately in accordance with this Privacy Policy as required by applicable law. These measures include:

You can ask us for more information about the steps we take to protect your personal information when transferring it from the EU.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Jano Foundation may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. Jano Foundation encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the change log below, and, in some cases, we may provide additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage), or sending you a notification through email or the community). Your further use of the Services after a change to our Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy.

That’s it! Thanks for reading.
